The family is under attack by the devil and our sinful culture, all determined to destroy marriage, your kids, and the moral values taught in the Scriptures.

Our broken world is made up of broken families—families with broken marriages and families with “prodigals.” These are sons and daughters who have left home for a far country where they can do what they like, leaving their parents and God far behind them. These “prodigals” desperately need to come home, but sadly, not all do.  Click here to listen (Duration 54:30)

The idea of final judgment offends many people. They can’t believe that God would send anyone to an everlasting hell. But we must take a sobering look at what the Bible teaches concerning the final destiny of all who never believed in Jesus for salvation. Why will unbelievers be judged this way? And what is the basis of this judgment?  Click here to listen (Duration 54:30)

The Bible speaks about a future anti-Christ, a great world leader who seeks and receives the worship of mankind.

In ancient Corinth you can see a platform where judges once sat. It was called the Bema.

Before Jesus was betrayed, He went to a garden called Gethsemane to pray. Even though He was fully God, His humanity was on full display. Jesus asked for the company of His closest friends as He prayed. The time had come for Christ to take upon Himself the sins of this world and the wrath of the Father. He accepted this cup from the hands of the Father so that we could be restored to God.  Click here to listen (Duration 54:30)

Very few people have an easy road through life. Most of us will face trials we never expected. When calamities come, merely human resources are not enough to sustain us.

Life for many of us is hard. The pressures are numerous: physical, economic, relational, and spiritual, and sometimes we begin to doubt that God cares for us. But we are not promised an easy life.

Before people believe in Jesus, they have no choice: they will sin repeatedly. After conversion, they do have a choice, no longer obligated to practice the sins they committed before.

The value of placing your faith in something is all about the object of your faith, and not about the faith itself. You can believe that an idol is God, but that doesn’t change the fact that the idol is made of stone. Faith in the wrong place is worse than no faith at all, because it creates false confidence. And when it comes to salvation, false confidence is deadly.  Click here to listen (Duration 54:30)
